Smart parking management tool from Hikvision
Hikvision’s Smart Parking Management System is designed to improve the management, security, and profitability objectives of parking operators. The system combines barrier technology with automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) to ensure seamless, managed vehicular entrance and exit from parking lots. Fast vehicle identification and integrated barrier control software means that queues are minimized, and greater vehicle flow can be handled to increase the productivity and efficiency of a parking site.
Advanced Hikvision DarkFighter and true wide dynamic range (WDR) imaging technologies are employed in the ANPR system, as well as optional IR or built-in white light LED lighting. These technologies are intended to ensure the delivery of crisp and clear recognition and recording of every vehicle using a parking lot day and night.
Parking guidance cameras automatically monitor the use of the car park along with the availability of spaces, 24 hours a day. The system highlights the available parking spaces to customers and guides them to those spaces upon arrival. This is achieved via parking guidance display screens at critical junctions within the car park, which display the number and location of available parking spaces. Additionally, a dynamic lighting indicator system directs customers to a specific space available—reducing customer parking times and creating an experience where drivers always find a free parking space quickly.
Controlled by the parking guidance terminal, the system not only provides power and network access for up to 32 nearby cameras, but also provides real-time video for surveillance and incident evidence preservation. Additionally, terminals back up critical data locally and can run parking guidance offline to ensure optimal system reliability and minimal impact on local area data networks.
A “Find My Car” feature creates additional value and an improved end-user experience in a parking lot. When returning to the parking lot, drivers can use the Query Kiosk touchscreen. By entering their license plate number in full or in part, vehicles can be located on a schematic floor map, and the vehicle location displayed, along with the shortest and quickest route to the vehicle.
Day-to-day management, including remote barrier control, license plate access management, vehicle accidents, and unauthorized parking, can be achieved with the centralized parking management platform. The central management platform enables operators to deploy manpower, monitor a comprehensive facility overview, and respond to planned and unplanned events quickly and efficiently.
The system can provide statistical and analytical parking lot information such as status history, parking usage rates, and parking vehicle flow. An open SDK framework allows system integrators to provide operators with a solution that works for them.
